Re: “The shock of loss, forgetting history

Hi, Al, and thank you for the respectful and well-researched response to my letter. My only comment is that neither my 30-plus years as a court reporter nor your 35 years in the military makes either of us experts on climate change.

I took this off the Nasa.gov website: "Multiple studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals show that 97 percent or more of actively publishing climate scientists agree: Climate-warming trends over the past century are extremely likely due to human activities. In addition, most of the leading scientific organizations worldwide have issued public statements endorsing this position."

Also see Scientific American article from March 2017 in which Secretary of Defense James Mattis is quoted as saying, "Climate change is impacting stability in areas of the world where our troops are operating today." Mattis signed off on the military's Joint Operating Environment, which lists climate change as one of the security threats the military expected to confront over the next 25 years.

We can all have our opinions, but I believe we should defer to those highly-educated individuals who study the subject.
We ignore them at our peril.
